Fans of Klout, prepare to be mortified. There’s a new site making the rounds on Twitter today and it’s poking fun at Klout – in a big way. It’s called Klouchebag and it’s pretty funny. Even loyal Klout participants will get a chuckle, because no matter how important Klout says you are, it’s always good to be able to laugh at yourself . . . right?
Klouchebag measures how much of an asshat you are on Twitter. No, I’m sorry it’s more than that. Much like Klout has been called the “standard for influence online,” Klouchebag is “the standard for measuring asshattery online!”
This is all in good fun, of course. It seems Tom just wants to remind us that some silly algorithm doesn’t define us. Or, as Stuart Smalley (from Saturday Night Live) tells us, regardless of what anyone (or any number) thinks:
So tell, us how much of a Klouchebag are you?
